Saint Mary's Theatre Program opens its 2021-22 season with Branden Jacob-Jenkins’ “Everybody.” A finalist for the 2018 Pulitzer Prize, “Everybody” is a wise and joyful riff on the 15th-century morality play “Everyman.” The action follows “Everybody” (chosen by lottery from among the cast at each performance) on a journey towards life’s greatest mystery—mortality itself. Guest director Daniel Larlham (Dance Nation, Lysistrata) plans to stage the play outdoors on the Saint Mary's campus as a processional event timed to unfold from sunset through twilight into darkness. Branden Jacob-Jenkins’ “Everybody” (directed by Daniel Larlham) performs one week, Wednesday-Sunday: Nov. 3 at 5 p.m., Nov. 4 at 5 p.m., Nov. 5 at 5 p.m., Nov. 6 at 5 p.m., and Nov. 7 at 4 p.m. (Note the early curtain on Sunday, because of Daylight Savings.) The show will be available on-demand Nov. 14. Limited tickets. Reserve soon. Ticket sales will begin Oct. 4 at stmarys-ca.edu/Everybody
